Macondo Jardin

Inspired by the stories of Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Winner of 2021 Australian Enterprise Award for the Best Exotic Dining Experience in Brisbane!

About


We converted this post-World War II warehouse into a colourful & vibrant performance & event space + dance-floor, full bar & kitchen, internal gardens, amazing lighting, air-conditioning, full A/V set-up, pool room, bathrooms, up to 120 guests cocktail, & up to 80 guests seated.

As the 2020 pandemic wreaked havoc on the entertainment industry and venues, we decided that in 2021 Macondo Jardin will be reborn as a totally new space. Check fb and insta for updates!

As your hosts, Jaime and Mimi, we decided to do something different alongside our transport company, and opened Macondo Café in January 2017 and then Macondo Jardin in September 2019. We wanted to share our love of Colombia and Latin America, its culinary and artistic culture, with the rest of the world. We warmly welcome you to exceptional service, a great atmosphere, great fun and variety, and Latin Fusion culinary delights.

What is Tejo?


Starting in Spring 2021 @Macondo Jardin - Sundays 11am-6pm

Tejo or Turmeque is the traditional sport of Colombia, an Indigenous game, more than 5 centuries old. The game involves two tilted boxes of clay at either end of an alley, and sensors in the clay to receive the impact of the TEJO or heavy cast-iron round weight. The players throw the tejo at the clay and it it lands on a Mecha (sensor or gunpowder target), the loud sound means a win. Tejo involves drinking, eating and having fun in a group. It is a noisy game of considerable skill & heaps of fun. See more details here, thanks Wikipedia! How to Play Tejo

Tejo is an Indigenous Colombian game involving a metal tejo or cast piece thrown at clay targets which are loaded with small explosives. It is a very social game involving lots of laughs and beer and fritangas (fried, grilled platters to share). Macondo Jardin has the only known Tejo courts in Australia.
